iTunes Review

Hailing from St. Louis, rock quartet Cavo plays no-nonsense, American-heartland style rock with a clean, driving edge. On Bright Nights * Dark Days, Casey Walker’s lead vocals bring to mind the likes of Lou Gramm, Paul Rodgers and similar straight-ahead rockers of a generation ago. But a touch of grunge angst and nü-metal austerity saves Cavo from retro status. The playing here is sharp and tight, with Brian Smith’s punchy bass lines deserving special kudos. “Champagne,” “Cry Wolf” and “Blame” draw upon the group’s tougher side, while “Beautiful” and “Useless” are moodily introspective. If Cavo comes on strong instrumentally, their melodies can be disconcertingly sweet and “Ghost,” co-written with the Nixons' Zac Maloy, has the lilt of a country-pop radio hit. Lyrically, the band is most comfortable winking at romantic intrigue (“My Little Secret”) or yearning for inner change (“Let It Go,” “Useless”), and ultimately, the melodies and lyric themes here matter less than the crunch and thump of the music.

Customer Reviews

Very nice!

Cavo is extremely refreshing. Hearing "Let it Go" on the Transformers 2 soundtrack, I immediately grew very fond of them and searched for any other tunes written by them. Their previous album "The Painful Art of Letting Go" was a CD that I could actually listen to all the way through which is something that these days, I find difficult to do. I like the emotion behind their lyrics and while some may compare them to Daughtry or Hinder - I find they stand out on their own.

This is an excellent recording, exquisitely produced, and leaves me wanting more

This is one of those rare recordings that touches ear nerves that I had forgotten about. If my only criticism is that it has a hook or two too many, then bring 'em on. Technically masterful drumming combined with the robust perfection of a confident bassist creates one of the tightest rythm section these ears have heard in a long time. Combined with a perfect full-aural forward of a guitarist that says "We're Here!" and the rich vocals that, at the same time warmly and painfully showcase the talent, emotions, experiences that, combined with some great songwriting, has had me telling my friends and like-minded contacts about this recording and gifting it to them through iTunes as well.


This band is great! If you have doubts as to whether or not you should give Cavo a chance, DON'T. Their music is worth your time! They have a great sound and the frontman has an amazing voice. BUY THIS ALBUM! You won't regret it.


Formed: 2001 in St. Louis, MO

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Cavo's four members -- frontman Casey Walker, guitarist Chris Hobbs, drummer Chad La Roy, and bassist Brian Smith -- champion a mix of hard rock muscle and alt-pop melodies. The latter three members formed the group in March 2001, and a series of setbacks (including one bandmate's disintegrating marriage and another's alcohol problem) helped fuel The Painful Art of Letting Go. The album marked Cavo's independent debut upon its release in 2006; moreover, it led to shows alongside the likes of Staind,...
